PRESENTATION: Practitioners of lean construction have become identified as agents for change in our industry, including the way we work, behave, and even the way we think. However, most work to date has focused on tools, methods, and thinking geared toward contractors. Come hear Romano Nickerson, AIA, speak about his experiences with lean as a principal architect at Boulder Associates. He will offer his understanding of lean within the construction industry, with specific interest given to impacts to the design process. Romano will provide examples of project work conducted in a lean manner while also highlighting ways in which Boulder Associates has undergone a lean transformation.
SPEAKER: With a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Minnesota, Romano Nickerson is a Principal with Boulder Associates, an architectural firm specializing in healthcare design. A special, long-term relationship with a progressive healthcare client exposed Romano to concepts of lean project management. An early interest quickly grew into a passion for Romano as he began transforming concepts initially meant for the production of cars into principles that could be applied to the design environment. He has developed and implemented innovative systems for applying lean production controls to architectural practice and project management and has helped clients to begin and sustain their own lean transformation. Romano has presented lean concepts for design and project management nationally on numerous occasions.
This event is free of charge thanks to the generosity of our sponsors.
